The GC Gibson Charity offers grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 (averaging around £4,000) to a wide range of UK registered charities, preferably those with annual charitable donation of less than £1 million. The Trustees are all highly involved in various philanthropic activities and priority for support is given to charities that the Trustees have previously worked with. However, the Trust adds a few new charities each year.
Each year, the Trustees focus on a particular theme. For 2017, the GC Gibson Charitable Trust supported capital equipment purchases or building refurbishment which provide benefit to the aged or the disadvantaged or disabled. The Trust wishes to encourage projects that increase engagement for the benefit of both individuals and society. The theme for 2018 is yet to be announced.
Deadline: Applications will re-open on Wednesday 1 August 2018. A deadline is set, however if a large number of applications are received the deadline will be brought forward. It is recommended you apply as soon as applications open.
